Why do I need a licence?

Songwriters, composers, music publishers and record labels have certain rights under Australian copyright law when it comes to how their music is used by other people. This includes when their music is captured in a video of an event or added to a video in post-production, and when those videos are shared with others.

To use copyright protected music in these ways, a licence is typically required from the copyright owners of the song and the sound recording.
